Should I partner my FIRST wholesaling deal? or do it myself?

10 Replies

Hi,

I  am a newbie starting the process of wholesaling properties. I did a little driving for dollars and found some possibilities. My question is, should I try to partner with an investor/wholesaler on this potential deal or do it by myself? I feel like I could use a little help with it since i'm so new..ty!

Hey Jake,

If you have a couple properties that you can acquire, I would work with an investor so you can share the risk/reward of the deals. You will also keep capital for the other opportunities if they come up quickly!

Sounds like you'v got your ball rolling so keep the momentum! 

Best of luck & Happy Holidays!

Ty Etienne, I agree, sounds like a good way to mitigate risk at this point,..What is a usual split in a case like this if I would partner with him? how would it work especially if he may be the one buying the property to flip

If you are new to the construction trade then a partner is not a bad idea. If i can be of any help just let me know  !

@Jake K. ,

If one person found the deal, the usually get a bigger piece of the pie or will cover less financing than the person who did not find the deal. They can invest a larger piece of the up-front costs, then you can split the profits 50/50 in the end. (If it is a flip)

You two are your own businesses, so as long as everybody feels that the split is fair and equal, then there is no problem!

I hope this helped.

Happy Holidays!

Makes sense for a flip, although im planning to wholesale it, and use it as a learning experience, so maybe give up more profit??

@Jake K. ,

Do what you can to make both sides feel equal and talk with your partner about what he feels is equal as well. If one side feels taken-advantage-of, this will cause issues later down the road. You want to create long lasting relationships and partnerships for the future...you two may end up making millions together in the future!
